    Sorry if this has been asked before. I wanted to know before i got in trouble or something. I wanted to spread a fert ( scotts or similar) weed+feed or liquid weed killer on my properties. Anyone from NJ know if i need to or how to go about getting a license :confused:

    The only thing you can do is fert. No weed n feed or roundup or nothing. in NJ you need 3A for turf, and 3B for ornamental. Go to the DEPwebsite. You get it through the Rutger CoOP.

    Josh, you said "your properties". If you own the property, you can apply as you please. If you are doing the work for hire, you must be a licensed applicator in the state of NJ. The license is not difficult to get with a little studying and taking a few tests, but applying without it and getting caught can ruin more than your day.
